What Physical ABuse lacks in square footage, it makes up for in fun classes. Located on the third floor of Income at Prinsep (at the eastern end of Orchard Road, where real estate is understandably tight), the functional training and fighting spaces occupy just a small corner of its main room, and you might have to queue for a twenty-minute blitz on one of their traffic-facing Technogym cardio machines.
Fortunately, there’s a bit more space and resources given to the dance studio, which offers a good variety of aerobic-centred weekly classes for a gym of its size. There’s Bokwa, the dance fad that’s a cross between exuberant African dancing, boxing and your knowledge of your ABCs, KpopX Fitness, which pairs aerobic moves to music from everyone’s favourite side of Korea, and a Dirty Dancing class that tests endurance and sensuality, in addition to standards like Zumba, pilates and kickboxing classes also offered on schedule.
General and personal training manager Edmund Tan leads a team of certified pre- and post-natal trainers, and can recommend exercises specifically for expectant and new mothers to keep fit. And aside from the gym’s general cardio and aerobic-focussed population, there’s a good chunk of their floor space dedicated to free weights for the grunting gym nut on a mission to hone a set of guns or a six pack as well.
